About Walter Scott

Walter Scott Quotes

Did you know about Walter Scott?

This trend accelerated in the twentieth century. I didn’t know exactly what a “dead soul” was but. In Ivanhoe as in the Waverley novels religious and sectarian fanatics are the villains while the eponymous hero is a bystander who must weigh the evidence and decide where to take a stand.

Famous titles include Ivanhoe Rob Roy The Lady of the Lake Waverley The Heart of Midlothian and The Bride of Lammermoor. His novels and poetry are still read and many of his works remain classics of both English-language literature and of Scottish literature.
